Abstract: Some of the most important problems in geometric evolution partial differential equations are related to the understanding of singularities. This usually happens through a blow up procedure near the singularity which uses the scaling properties of the equation. In the case of a parabolic equation the blow up analysis often leads to special solutions which are defined for all time −∞
